Eric Bischoff has commented on the situation in AEW many times, and this time he addressed Tony Khan. Bischoff doesn't seem to have the best opinion of him, especially after Khan insulted Bischoff's former boss, Ted Turner.
"I was cheering him on until he started to do some really stupid s*** and still putting himself over at the expense of other people," Bischoff said on his "83 Weeks" podcast, as quoted by wrestlinginc. "That statement [about Ted Turner] is what turned me off to Tony Khan.
That was so disrespectful to Ted Turner. Meanwhile, the little b**** is on TNT or TBS and he's disrespecting the guy that created the [freaking] network and suggesting that Ted Turner doesn't know as much as Tony Khan. I'm sorry, your name is now on another list."

Eric can't believe that Khan really decided in such a way.
"Disrespect me, I'm cool with that. Disrespect a lot of people in WCW that did a lot of great things and actually made your opportunity possible, Tony, disrespect them, I get that; you're young, you're excited, you're pushing your product.
But when he sh** on Ted Turner, especially when he's part owner of a [freaking] football team that is nothing more than a punchline. Are you [freaking] kidding me?" On Konnan's Keepin' It 100 podcast, Eric Bischoff commented on the current situation and chaos in AEW “I just can’t imagine what executives at Warner, Discovery are thinking about when now this is the second time that’s happened, right? MJF did the same thing a couple months ago.
And in front of by the way, a bunch of executives who were in the arena is from what I’ve heard. Now we see the same thing again, from a different guy, if I’m an executive in a media company, and I’m thinking about stroking a check for $45 million a year to somebody.
I kind of want to know they got their s*** together and what I saw. I mean I was humiliated for Tony [Khan]. I really was”. he said, as quoted by pwmania.com
